Definition

Autism; Infantile Autism; Kanner Syndrome; Autism is a lifelong, nonprogressive neurologic disorder typically appearing before the age of thirty months; It is characterized by language and communication deficits, withdrawal from social contacts and extreme reactions to changes in the immediate environment; About 75 percent of children with autism have low scores on standardized intelligence tests; The outlook for independent living may be improved with intensive training. [NORD 2005]

SNIP genomic markers have been found and there is a gene deletion of neurexin 1; the implication is loss of efficient neuron neuron connection pathophysiology; involved chromosomes are 11 and 15; More common in males 4:1 plus
